Recommend this film

An official selection at Cannes, Toronto and Berlin, this quiet comedy takes us back to the late 1950’s and the Cold War, when the white sandy beaches of Latvia were part of the Soviet Union’s frontier. Every night, Soviet tractors comb the coast of Latvia looking for signs of anyone who could have infiltrated the Soviet border from the sea. One morning, three Soviet patrolmen discover a woman’s shoe in the sand and footsteps leading to the quaint little village of Liepaja. Alarms sound, troops are dispatched, and an official investigation begins. Just like Cinderella, each woman in the village tries on the shoe, though the reward for a perfect fit will be no Prince Charming.
